We may not always learn the nature of farmhand injuries during the regular season, but the Brewers do release injury information each spring -- here are updates, some items we knew previously, many we did not. Alphabetically (all links lead to player's Baseball Reference page, from which you can review age, draft round, etc.)

Injury details via Brewers Media Relations Dept. (Media Guide)

RHP Sean Albury - The "Mad Bahamian" underwent rotator cuff surgery on his pitching shoulder after his wonderful rookie season (12/27/11) and missed the 2012 campaign.

SS Orlando Arcia - Missed the 2012 season with a fractured right ankle, suffering the injury while sliding into second base during an extended spring training game on 4/25.

RHP Eric Arnett - Here's the 2/7/13 article on Arnett's surgery (right knee torn ACL). Arnett will miss the 2013 regular season.

1B/3B Juan De Leon - De Leon's 2012 Dominican Summer League season start was delayed by left knee ACL surgery on 1/19/12.

RHP Rodolfo Fernandez - We never did find out why the soon-to-be 23-year-old Cuban refugee's pro debut was delayed until 2013. Now we know he missed the 2012 season with a fractured right hand.

RHP Brooks Hall - The 2009 4th rounder went on the disabled list on 7/26 with right elbow inflammation and missed the rest of the season.

OF Mitch Haniger - On a play at the plate on 7/5, the 2012 supplemental 1st round pick suffered a partial tear of the PCL in his right knee.

INF Greg Hopkins - Placed on the disabled list on 8/25 with a partially torn left quadriceps.

RHP Chris Jakubauskas - in Toronto's system at the time, landed on the DL on 8/9 through the end of the regular season with right shoulder impingement. Impressed enough in the Venezuelan Winter League for the Brewers to sign him.

OF Brock Kjeldgaard - Suffered a broken left foot on a foul tip in an Arizona Fall League game on 10/27.

RHP Andre Lamontagne - Missed all of 2011 with right shoulder bursitis, then most of 2012 following surgery on the shoulder. Lamontagne did appear in three rehab games with Maryvale at season's end.

RHP Maverick Lasker - Missed the majority of the 2012 season with two separate stints on the DL with back muscle strains.

3B/1B Sthervin Matos - Missed the majority of the 2012 season with a torn meniscus in his left knee, on the Dominican Summer League disabled list from 7/5 - 8/19.

RHP Andy Moye - Placed on the Brevard County DL on 8/17 with a rotator cuff strain in his pitching shoulder and missed the rest of the season.

RHP Jimmy Nelson - Nelson's disabled list stint from 7/1 - 7/27 was for a right shoulder rotator cuff strain.

RHP Pedro Peguero - The big (6'6", 233) Peguero missed most of his age 19 2012 Dominican Summer League season when he underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right elbow on 1/26. He made three late-season appearances.

LHP Brandol Perez - First of all, you need to re-read this detailed post from when the Brewers first signed Perez. In 2011, Perez was idle all season with a fractured pitching elbow. Still recovering from that surgery, now as a Brewer, Perez would miss all of 2012 as well.

LHP Stephen Peterson - Went on the Wisconsin DL on 8/17 and underwent surgery for a right knee ACL injury.

1B Nick Ramirez - You may remember that Ramirez' 2012 campaign was delayed at the start until 5/10 (fractured right hand hamate bone).

RHP Francisco Rivero - Rivero's season ended on 7/24 with a right elbow strain.

OF Victor Roache - Missed the 2012 season recovering from a broken left wrist, suffered at Georgia Southern.

C Tyler Roberts -- Placed on the Wisconsin DL on 7/24 with a right wrist sprain, missing the remainder of the season.

OF Lance Roenicke - Late in the Timber Rattlers' postseason, Roenicke was limited to pinch-running duties because of wrist and shoulder injuries.

RHP Austin Ross - After just three Brevard County starts, Ross was placed on the DL 4/21 and underwent Tommy John surgery.

RHP Cody Scarpetta - Missed all of the 2012 season which included Tommy John surgery, performed at the end of May.

OF Tyrone Taylor - A shoulder injury ended Taylor's rookie season after 75 scintillating Maryvale and Helena at-bats.

RHP Chad Thompson - Thompson would be sidelined from 7/19 - 8/16 with a rotator cuff strain, but was then a key contributor down the stretch in the Rattlers' championship run.

C Shawn Zarraga - We finally learn that Zarraga's Brevard County season was cut short by a torn ACL in his right knee.
